Inspired by Peter Gabriel’s The Nest That Sailed The Sky from Ovo

the waking

colors become sharper; focusing
inside a cave of brown beige

soft curves, lifting

dried grasses and twigs
surrounding me
as my heart searches for moist air

quiet becomes life
fear becomes comfort
I breathe
inside the nest

tuning to the ground
tuning to the sky
your love flutters overhead

preening, filling me
inside, with love
